Cool Kids Orewa is committed to providing an excellent, nurturing learning environment where children can learn at their own individual pace with continuous progress. Our goal is to cultivate an environment which will nourish and channel their natural love for learning and allow them to reach their full potential and develop into self-confident and responsible individuals.
Based on the our curriculum, our spacious classrooms all have the basic learning areas in the "prepared environment" - Language Arts, Mathematics, Sensorial, Practical skills, and the Cultural Subjects which include, Geography, Science and History. Enrichment programs are also offered. These include music, art and gym. This provides a balanced curriculum for the academic, social and emotional development of each child.
We believe in providing an environment where children are respected and valued as individuals.
Where their emotional, spiritual and physical needs are met in a loving, caring manner.
We believe that children need a strong sense of self-worth.
That they learn best if they are given opportunities to explore their environment, to create and act upon their own ideas, to develop knowledge and skills in areas that interest them.
This will ensure that they experience a sense of achievement, so that when they leave Cool Kids Orewa they will go on to school with the knowledge that
'I am a confident learner and communicator.'
Our school follows The Te whariki curriculum for early education. a young child had great potential for learning. The environment it is prepared and structured to allow a child to learn through exploring independently and at his or her own pace.
We believe in maintaining a confident team of collegiality, who believe in this philosophy, Adults are able to take constructive feedback from colleagues about their own individual, or the teams collective values and teaching practices. This will ensure constant debate and reflective practice between all, qualified and trainee teachers for the benefit of the children and their whanau at our centre.
Each child has their own portfolio both online and a hard copy folder which includes observations and assessments. They are rich in information and photos and showcase each childs journey. You are welcome to take them home to share with family and to add your own special stories to them, but we do ask you to bring them back to keep them updated.
All of our policies and procedures are kept in the Blue Operations Folder by the door for your perusal at any time.
